England’s efforts to turn a strong position in the first Test into a decisive one were led by rousing all-round contributions from Stuart Broad and Moeen Ali on a sweltering day of hard-fought cricket at Lord’s. South Africa’s manful resistance came chiefly via a half-century from the captain, Dean Elgar, as well as an unbeaten 48 from Temba Bavuma but they still trailed by almost 250 runs at the close.

Bavuma and Theunis de Bruyn, in only his second Test, hauled South Africa away from peril after they had been reduced to 104 for 4 shortly after tea, Broad and Moeen sharing the wickets between them, but James Anderson broke the 99-run fifth-wicket stand as the shadows lengthened. Joe Root, whose maiden innings as Test captain had been ended on 190, spent his first day in the field shuffling a six-man attack to good effect; there was further slog in store but his bowlers could enjoy the afterglow of satisfaction having reacquainted themselves with the demands of Test cricket.

Rabada’s day, however, and South Africa’s as a whole, would be marred at the close of play, when he was served with a suspension for next week’s second Test after picking up his fourth ICC demerit point, following an altercation with Ben Stokes on the opening day.
